FAQ

Q: What's the difference between this package and extra/webkit2gtk?

A: webkitgtk/webkitgtk2 provides WebKit1 API/ABI, which is not compatible with WebKit2 API/ABI provided by extra/webkit2gtk. WebKitGTK+ 2.4.x is the latest branch that provides WebKit1 API. Later branches provides WebKit2 API only.

Please don't flag it as out-of-date.


Q: Are there binaries for this package somewhere?

A: We maintain built and signed packages at https://cdn.repo.archlinuxcn.org


Q: "error while loading shared libraries: libicui18n.so.62: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

A: You'll need to rebuild against the latest version of ICU.


Q: "error: ‘WTF::StringImpl::StaticASCIILiteraicASCIILiteral’ has not been declared" or any enchant errors.

A: If you are building in parallel, try disabling parallel using -j1 in /etc/makepkg.conf


Q: Why building takes too long time?

A: WebKit is inherently big and complex. You can modify /etc/makepkg.conf or PKGBUILD directly to build it in parallel.

  • Change "make all stamp-po" by "make -j x all stamp-po" in PKGBUILD replacing x by cores your machine has. (Thanks to @MadMe)

  • Change /etc/makepkg.conf in that way: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/makepkg#Parallel_compilation under # ARCHITECTURE, COMPILE FLAGS use MAKEFLAGS="-j9" # It should be one more than your virtual CPUs. (Thanks to @tuxsavvy).

However be pending if errors occur as mentioned in previous question.


Q: How much I want to wait to a successful compilation?

A: It varies of your PC's processor and RAM, the times shared in the comments are as follow:

  • 3.5 hours to build on core i5 laptop with 8G of RAM, makeflags j4. (@cabbage)

  • 13.5 hours to build on AMD Athlon X2, makeflags j1 (@Bonnietwin).

  • 5-6 hours on Core2Duo E8400 with 8GB RAM, makeflags j2 (tuxsavvy).

  • 50 minutes on 6c/12t 3.3GHz (@kubrick).

I'm sorry I'm confused on what I need to do here. I need webkitgtk2 for lightdm-webkit-greeter but it takes forever to build webkitgtk2. How would I go about doing this?

zman0900 commented on 2017-08-06 07:12

Does this really need to be a split package? As far as I can tell the only thing shared between the gtk2 and gtk3 builds in the source code - it runs two separate builds back to back then packages both. I bet most people don't need both, so it sucks to have to either wait on both or manually edit the PKGBUILD.

Following martadinata666's comment, here's how to install without compiling:

yaourt -S downgrade
/usr/bin/downgrade webkitgtk
# Select 1)
# Add to IgnrList
yaourt -S remarkable

martadinata88 thanks for the suggestion! Mine compiled for over 4 hours until I aborted it. I downloaded webkitgtk2 2.4.11-6 with the package you mentioned.

Seems like I installed the same version as I was trying to compile for half a day in like 10 seconds. Sounds too good to be true ;)

for the ppl who dont want compile for long time, use aur package downgrade it will search remote package from archlinux server to download, and install it.

NOTE: This *will* require LOTS of tmpfs !

Took 50min for me on 6c/12t 3.3GHz, it's quite a beast to compile.

I've been trying to build this all day. I left it for literally five hours. Is that normal? I'm on a (fairly powerful) desktop PC...
